Back and at it again! This week's show has three regular segments and another one of those illusive bonus segments as well.

Kicking things off, Alex, Neal, and Scott talk about Rayman Legends (for real this time!), the Ubisoft platformer that was notoriously delayed. The guys pick the game apart and discuss why they each like it to varying degrees.

After that, Neal and Scott return with another "This Week in Nintendo" segment, breaking down this week's eShop releases, including The Wonderful 101, which Neal has had the good pleasure of playing this week. Neal also spends the last half of the segment regaling us with tales about Wind Waker HD, another game he's been playing. What a lucky guy!

Daan then returns with another one of his famed eShop developer interviews. This week, Daan sits down with QubicGames, who are releasing AiRace Speed this week on the 3DS eShop. Daan inquires about past and present games as well as the experience of developing for Nintendo platforms.

After the outro, J.P. and Neal sit down for a little discussion about the ongoing NFL season. They actually recorded it before the start of the season last week, so some of their predictions might already seem a little silly (the Packers are already marching toward an 0-16 season), but that's OK!

Be sure to send us your listener mail! We'll see you next week.

FYI The Challenges App no longer has challenges. It's just the demo levels and a reminder to buy the game if you want to play challenges.

I am hoping that 350 of RFN has given you guys the idea to do a spoof episode for 103 where all the segments get derailed by Karl Castaneda and Stan Furgeson.

Ghosts in Rayman Legends Challenge Apps helped me tremendously to understand Rayman's jumping physics. It has very peculiar rules to it, like the most important part of the movement is momentum. It's so important if you can get into the rhythm of jumping just right you can keep all momentum between jumps instead of killing it and will move at almost double speed compared when you just run.

When i was observing ghosts that were beating me, i started doing what they do and found out this and many other mechanics. Because the physics is largely the same between Origins and Legends i came back to Wii game and actually finished it to 100% and enjoyed it immensely.

From what i heard on this podcast and in other places Legends feels like a lesser game than Origins which is a shame. It looks like it has much less content and was made easier.

Murphy's levels sounded awful at first, but i enjoyed doing them in Challenge App for high scores. It got very frantic, very fast.

You can definitely change difficulty between levels in Wonderful 101.

Also, get Toki Tori 2 everyone. I got in April when it was still Wii U exclusive and it was amazing. It was my favourite game on Wii U until W101.

Wind Waker HD... I just see no point in the remake. The original game's visuals still look amazing, i played it just this year for the first time. If you didn't played it before -- of course get it and enjoy.

Are these inverviews in the middle of recent connectivities coming from that 4 hour monster of recording from NintenDaan? I mean should i listen to it or just wait till all interviews will be posted in connectivities.

No, these are new interviews. BUT, if you want to listen to the interviews from that mega podcast in smaller segments, you can do so right here.
